In my Fluid Mechanics textbook they use the Euler equation to derive Bernoulli's principle for incompressible fluids with gravity. In my earlier introduction to mechanics textbook they used energy conservation. Is there a reason for using the Euler equation or is it just to show more ways to derive Bernoulli's principle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The reason I ask is because I find the Euler method more difficult.

I use Kundu/Cohen Fluid Mechanics
